Testers ANNOUNCED! SkyCaddie LX5 Watch


Recommended Posts

There’s some irony when contemplating the market for watches in 2020.

Specifically, it’s a situation where the original purpose of the item is no longer a defining selling point.

Remember when the primary, if not the only, purpose of a watch was to keep time? Me neither.

It’s a reasonable assumption that time is anything but of the essence; golfers are far more interested in all of the golf-related stuff that this piece of wearable technology does.

The SkyCaddie LX5 GPS watch is built around the architecture of the SX500which was named the “Best Handheld GPS” in MyGolfSpy’s annual Most Wanted testing.

It offers an abundance of bundled golf technology, and did I mention it also tells time. Ain’t that something?

9.5 index play on a Tillinghast course. Course is quite hilly as such I use a handheld scope with elevation. I actually have been looking to buy a watch but haven’t found one that I completely like and is equal to the handheld

Presently using a Bushnell Neo for yardage determining. I'm your basic public course golfer and would be excited to try something that supplies more details than my Neo.

I've never been a product tester and would be happy to try one.

Steve Pona - St. Louis, MO

I have used cart GPS and a variety of apps when playing with friends; iPhone and watches

I have been old school - yardage plates / sprinklers and eyes

I've been playing more inter-club matches and have been severely handicapped because many courses are NOT marked well.  I have been contemplating buying a watch. This brand/model would be on my short list.

 

Thanks for the consideration!

3,Always I use the laser range finder
I currently use Easy Green 1300, which I love because it catches pins more easily than Bushnell or Nikon

Andy Renger in San Diego. I use a Garmin S10 watch every time I okay - it’s what I use to determine yardage. I’d love to be a tester as long as this watch works outside of the fairways!  :-)
